2016 Holiday Inspiration Series with Tim Holtz

Happy Monday, Friends!

Did you all see the fun news? Tim Holtz has just launched a month-long Holiday Inspiration Series on his blog, and I am so honored and excited to have the first project up! Throughout this special series, we hope to share lots of amazing new products from Tim’s new 2016 Holiday Release, and project ideas to jump start a whole season of holiday crafting and creativity.


For my project I have made a card and matching tag set featuring lots of fabulous goodies from Tim’s new holiday collection. I’ve used some new Tim Holtz Alterations dies and embossing folders, along with new holiday papers, glittery deco sheets, and Idea-ology ephemera bits to create an elegant and traditional holiday look with a bit of a vintage feel.

I just love this new Enchanted Doves Alterations die. And since this is a Bigz die, that means you can die cut any number of surfaces, including the fuzzy fleece I used here. I really love how the soft fabric of the bird adds a whole new layer of texture and detail to the design. Makes you want to reach out and touch it.

Isn’t the new Holiday Deco Paper beautiful? Adds an instant sense of glamor and sparkle that is always so welcome at the holidays.

I really love the vintage nostalgic feel to this set, and the bits of holiday shine mixed with lots of natural rustic touches. But my favorite part is the little surprise element to this otherwise traditional design. The card is a spinner. Open it up, and the dove twirls around. A fun touch for whoever opens it. And looks kinda cool as a decor piece, too.

I hope you enjoyed this peek at the new Tim Holtz 2016 Holiday Collection! I’ve got the full step-by-step instructions for today’s project over on Tim’s blog, if you’d like to learn more. And be sure to stop back there often this month as the Holiday Inspiration Series continues.

P.S.- It’s time for some sneak peeks! Here’s the first peek from my Holiday Shop, opening
